Not sure if this is the new station testing from Germany, or a pirate.  Heard a couple of songs by Blondie when I first tuned in.  This was followed by two instrumental surf guitar songs.  S6 in NY, relatively low noise on 49 meter band here in NY.  ID at 2250 UTC.

Tuned in to hear a spacey tune, then some announcements from DJ Dickweed.  He mentioned playing songs from the Foo Fighters and a new tune from Beck.  S8 in NY.

Tuned in, and heard the unmistakable voice of the "Mouth of the South", Mr. Andy Walker at 2337.  Lots of atmospheric noise at the moment, so can't copy what is being said, other than AW sounds excited about something. S5 in NY.

Heard "YMCA" by Village People when I tuned in.  Followed by some 80's hair band type rock music.  S6 in NY.  "Final Countdown" now at 2118 UTC.

Have heard various styles of music thus far; a slow Motown type song, some electronic music.  Deep voiced male announcer, so could be Johnny Tobacco.  S5 in New York at 2023 UTC.  Some USB chatter nearby.  Sounds like some polka type music at 2025 UTC.  Carrier of at 2028 UTC.  Now sounding like call to prayer on
6300 kHz in USB mode.

Hearing some 80's music here; "She's Fresh" at tune-in.  S5 in NY.  

I don't have a carrier, I think it's in USB.  Tuned in at 1332 UTC, really hard to make out what this is.  It sounds like Christmas vocals at times ("Ave Maria"), but also a ute on top of it?

Song with male vocals, sounds a bit like Creedence Clearwater Revival at 2322 tune-in.  S7 signal, but the band is noisy for me.  Another pop song at 2324 UTC. "Stir it Up" at 2330 UTC.

Two-tone bands like Madness and The Specials owe their careers to this man's music.


I've got a carrier here and some very weak audio at 2328 UTC.  Talk by OM at 2330 UTC.  Noise levels are just too high to copy anything unfortunately.  This could be Radio Marabu, maybe someone else will get a clear ID.  S5 signal in NY, but most of that is noise.

Hearing CW at S6 levels in NY at 1426 UTC.  Figured I'd post first, then fire up the software to try to decode it.  

Stranglers "Golden Brown" at 1430 UTC.

There was some more CW at 1439, I didn't catch all of it, but here's what CWGet decoded:

Amphetamine Radio as per SSTV Scottie DX image around 1445 UTC.  Followed by more CW at 1450 UTC:

More SSTV at 1459 UTC.

1505 Jim Carroll "People Who Died"

1532 Blondie "Atomic"

No ID yet, but according to their FB page, this should be them, and will be on until 2300 UTC.  Passion Pit with "1985" when I tuned in.  S9 signal in NY with a bit of fading.

2231 Hockey "Too Fake"

2310 Still on the air, Caveman "Never Want to Know"
2312 RJD2 "The Stranger"

Lots of new tunes (at least for me) tonight.  Thanks Mr. A. C.

Weak signal, possibly a song by the Band when I tuned in at 2245 UTC.  S5-S6 in NY, but a lot of that is just atmospheric noise.  As per Iann's chat, this is Radio Focus International.

2251 "Why Can't We Be Friends?"

"I'm Your Captain" at sign-on.  S9+ into New York.  And off at 1647.

Started from an open carrier, trumpet music at 1500 UTC.  Signal is bombing in here in NY, very clear audio.  Opening music is the Godfather Waltz.

The Godfather theme continues with "Love Theme" at 1515 UTC.  Audio is sounding real good!

1605 Music stopped, but carrier still on, now off.

Maybe we should call this Godfather Radio?
